AUCD is excited to announce that recruitment is now open for the 2021 AUCD Emerging Leaders Map!  This year's theme is "Promoting Health Equity: Identifying Access Barriers and Protecting Rights to Services for People with Disabilities."

Our team is looking for each AUCD member Program or Center to nominate one (1) Emerging Leader to be on this year's AUCD Emerging Leaders Map. The Map will showcase the many ways that emerging leaders are driving change in their states/territories, and also to facilitate dialogue and collaboration between AUCD member Centers and Programs. 

Emerging Leaders - If you are interested in being featured on the map, please complete the nomination survey here. Please see the box at the right side of this page for a pdf version of all the questions for those that would like to view it ahead of time. Please submit your nomination through the survey

Interested Emerging Leaders will be asked for their responses to the following questions: 

  1. What does health equity mean to you? 
  2. How do you plan on promoting health equity within your community?  
  3. What are your professional and/or personal goals as an Emerging Leader within and outside the AUCD network? 
The deadline for nominations is Monday, April 12.


If you have any additional questions about the process or the map, please do not hesitate to reach out to Emerging Leaders Intern, Kiki Oyetunji at [email protected]! We will get back to you as soon as possible, and we look forward to reviewing your nominations and learning more about each of you!
